Winslow Homer

Winslow Homer (1836-1910) was a self-taught American painter and illustrator, considered a master of watercolors. Homer began his career as an illustrator and chronicled the Civil War for Harper's Weekly. Following the war he concentrated on light subjects and pastoral scenes. After a stay in the English fishing village of Cullercoats in 1881-82, his pictures became more dramatic and began to emphasize marine subjects. He is now considered one of the great painters of the sea.
